Mrs Darling encounters a strange being in her children's room. It escapes but leaves its shadow behind. It is the end of the day and the children, Michael, John and Wendy, with their dog Nana, play and have supper. Mr and Mrs Darling are preparing to go out to a dinner party and, with Liza their maid, get the children ready for bed before they leave.

As the children sleep, Tinker Bell, a fairy, flies into and around the room, followed by Peter Pan, whose fairy she is. Peter is looking for his shadow but when he finds it, can't get it to join on again. Wendy wakes up and sews it back on, and as Peter flies about the room her brothers wake too. Peter teaches them all to fly, with the help of Tinker Bell's fairy dust, and as Nana and their parents run into the room, they all fly out of the window and up to…

Tinker Bell tells the Lost Boys that Peter has brought them some prey to shoot down. Tootles fires his arrow and Wendy falls down from the skies.

Mermaids are sunning themselves as the children play, eat and rest on the beach. The Pirates arrive by boat, and a fierce fight ensues. Hook is chased away by the Crocodile who wants to eat the rest of him, having eaten his arm already. Peter and Wendy are left alone on Marooner's Rock as the waters begin to rise. Wendy flies away on the tail of a kite. It won't carry two and Peter is unable to fly as Hook slashed him in the fight. He prepares to die, the biggest Adventure of all, but the Neverbird gives him her nest for a boat and he sails away and into the next Adventure.

The pirates and Captain Hook abduct the children but Hook can't reach Peter so poisons his medicine instead. Tinker Bell wakes Peter who realises what has happened. As he prepares to rescue them all Tinker Bell tries to prevent him from drinking his medicine before he goes. She drinks it herself to save his life and begins to die.
